Virtual Reality version of the Confined Space simulation is an affordable alternative, allowing to manage costs of the simulator installation while maintaining high realism of situations.
Such training is based on IOGP Life-Saving Rules and is meant to draw attention to the activities, which are most likely to lead to a fatality and the life-saving actions over which an individual has control.
A confined space, such as a vessel, tank, pipe, cellar or excavation, can contain explosive gas, toxic or asphyxiating atmosphere, or other dangers such as energy releases, lack of oxygen, exposure to hazardous chemicals, things that can fall on you or crush you, or that you can fall from. Authorized access keeps you safe. Organizations should determine if any work involving excavations or trenches creates confined space conditions and ensure necessary work authorization and controls.
